Nestled in the woodlands of Grubville, Missouri, by a creek, glampers can find this completely unique A-frame cabin where those who stay can relax and reconnect with nature and free range animals. Once a chapel, it's now in transition to a new look with unfinished walls and tall ceiling. The A-frame has the ability to accommodate up to five guests comfortably. This all-open studio cabin features a queen-size bed with a charming canopy type setting, a couch, and a pull-out sofa bed, providing for an enchanting stay. There is a dining table that seats six and a bar area with two bar stools as well as a hanging chair. Two separate seating areas provide plenty of space to feel on vacation.
An eco-friendly composting bucket is found outside of the cabin. Hand washing is done outside with the hose provided. The space is unheated, although there are a couple of space heaters and a wood burning stove that takes the edge off when it's cold. There are fans and a small a/c unit for warmer days.
